Her Leafy Eye

A poet and an artist/garden designer collaborate to catch the spirit of the Rousham Gardens, Oxon. The text and computer-generated illustrations are in a shifting three-way dialogue with each other and with the culture of ‘landscape’. Familiar features such as a rill, a dovecot, espaliers and a walled garden all make an appearance – though these turn out to be simply the leaping-off point for a grand tour of the imagination.

“Poems inspired by the wonderful Rousham Gardens (Oxon) which ‘capture the soul of this glorious space’. ~ Alys Fowler, BBC Gardeners World

Includes the poem “Leaf Goddess”, winner of the National Trust Landlines Competition for poetry.
